The Relationship of Parental Knowledge to the Development of Extremely Low Birth Weight Infants.
Dichtelmiller, Margo; And Others
Journal of Early Intervention, v16 n3 p210-20 Sum 1992
This study found that mothers (n=40) of extremely high-risk infants (averaging 1000 grams birthweight and 28 weeks gestational age) called upon the same experiences and sources of information as mothers of full-term infants. Infants of mothers with above average knowledge about infancy scored significantly higher on tests of infant development at eight months (corrected age). (DB)
